Originally released in 2006 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of New Balance, the Made in USA 992 introduced ABZORB cushioning into the 900 series. WTAPS helps celebrate the sneaker and its importance by adding its olive drab color palette and orange. Throughout the design you can see small details like WTAPS branding on the tongue and heel as well as colorful pinks and blues on the bottom of the sole that add focus points.
Fans in Japan will be able to purchase the collaborative pair on May 1 for ¥39,600 JPY, about $370 USD. In addition to wtaps.com and newbalance.jp, retailers like HOODS, DSMG, Ron Herman, Union Tokyo and UNITED ARROWS & SONS will also carry the release. Check out the full list here. New Balance and Todd Snyder recently teamed up for a 997 "Chalk Stripe" celebrating tennis culture of the '70s.
